Formula: Nutramigen 1 & 2 LIPIL

Formula: Nutramigen 1 & 2 LIPIL

Nutramigen Lipil is a special, hypoallergenic formula for babies and children with cow’s milk protein allergy or intolerance. Cow’s milk allergy/intolerance may result in a variety of symptoms which may include eczema, colic, diarrhoea or constipation.
The protein in Nutramigen Lipil has been extensively broken down (hydrolysed) into tiny pieces that are not recognised by the immune system and will not trigger an allergic reaction in most infants.

Nutramigen Lipil is lactose-free and is available as Nutramigen Lipil 1, which is suitable for babies from birth and Nutramigen Lipil 2, which is suitable from 6 months onwards and contains more calcium for older babies.

Due to their special formulation Nutramigen Lipil 1 & 2 smell and taste different to routine formulas. The following tips will help your baby to get used to the new taste:

  • If you need to supplement your breastfeeds with Nutramigen Lipil, try to express some breast milk and mix it 50:50 with freshly prepared Nutramigen Lipil. Your dietitian can give you more advice about this.
  • It may take a few days for your baby to get used to the taste of Nutramigen Lipil. Try to be positive during feeding times, even if you don’t like the smell. Babies often respond to parents’ reactions! Remember your sense of taste and smell is different from your baby’s which is not so well developed at this age.
  • Older children may prefer to take the formula from a covered cup. They may also prefer to have the formula as a cold drink.
  • Ask your dietitian for advice regarding weaning your baby and for milk free recipes. For more information please phone our Mead Johnson Careline on +44 (0)1895 230575.
Babies fed Nutramigen Lipil may produce frequent loose stools of a greenish colour – this is quite normal.
